They've been through a couple of buses and band members over the years. They used to have a 1963 GMC, nicknamed Rajah. Now, they have a Prevost bus that, if rumor is correct, used to be used by Toby Keith.

The current lineup is incredible. Probably the tightest in 10 years (been seeing them since 1996).

They do four of their own festivals every year...

Virginia Key Grassroots in early February down in Miami.
Shakori Hills Grassroots in April and October outside of the Raleigh/Durham area.
And the Fingerlakes Grassroots in July in Central NY.

I've been hitting the Fingerlakes version since 1994 (only skipping 1995 and 2008). It's my understanding that the Fingerlakes Grassroots Festival is the largest non-commercially sponsored festival in the country. And it's like no other festival! Love it.
